 23 Sandy Gallery hosts two juried exhibitions each year. These are the gallery’s two BIG events of the year and are always a huge draw for gallery visitors, both in person and online. As the gallery celebrates its six-year anniversary this month it is very exciting to present our first juried show of the year, FEAST!   The book arts offer a banquet of materials, mediums and structures. Food offers a smorgasbord of ideas for the artist. Mix up generous servings of food and art and you have a sumptuous feast called book arts. This show features 46 food-related unique and limited edition artist books and broadsides by 43 artists. Food can play many roles in the book arts: cook books, memories of food and family, books about food issues such as hunger, sustainability or tales of the locavore. Go forth and feast on this big wide world of food inspiration.   FEAST! features the work of the following artists: Naomi Adams, Islam Aly, Patty Bruce, Cathleen Casey, Minali Chatani, Robin Bachtler Cushman, Katie Delay, David Esslemont, Virginia Flynn, Patricia Freeman-Martin, Jonathan Gerken, Annie Herlocker, Diane Jacobs, Deborah Kogan, Karen Koshgarian, Elaine Langerman, Woody Leslie, Louise Levergneux, Sarah McCoy, Tekla McInerney, Bessie Smith Moulton, Jackie Niemi, Kathleen O’Connell, Chandler O’Leary, Lisa Onstad, Bettina Pauly, Linda Piacentini-Yaple, Bob Pliny, Katya Reka, Janet Reynolds, Robert Rowe, Elizabeth Sanford, Marina Sartori, Julie Shaw Lutts, Daniel Smith, Laurie Szujewska, Lane Taplin, Bonnie Thompson Norman, M. L. Van Nice, Elsi Vassdal Ellis, Laurie Weiss, Sandra Winkworth and Pamela Wood. (Please note that not all of the works from FEAST will make the trip north. Some books are too delicate to travel and to make things manageable Laura will bring just as much as will fit in her car.)
